JOHN COLLINS (1)
English staymaker, miniature painter and actor
(1742 - 1808)

In a cottage I live, and the cot of content,
  Where a few little rooms for ambition too low,
    Are furnish'd as plain as a patriarch's tent,
      With all for convenience, but nothing for show:
        Like Robinson Crusoe's, both peaceful and pleasant,
          By industry stor'd, like the hive of a bee;
            And the peer who looks down with contempt on a peasant.
              Can ne'er be look'd up to with envy by me.
      - How to be Happy,
        song in his Scripscrapologia
        [Contentment]
